Not a puzzle, just a huge pain in the arse.

You can get to those 10mm nuts without removing the batteries but it's a tight squeeze.

before you take them apart look at them aimed on the wall then mark, adjust when you replace, and i didnt know you could buy lens only, i have my factory ones in a box in the corner of my garage tho.

They really aren't that bad, just take your time. Removing the batteries helps a ton.
